If you need some information about where to look, here are some options near Sonoma Palms to get you started.

Cultural Sites

Las Cruces has an incredible selection of museums, theaters, libraries, and other cultural sites, and they need your help. If you enjoy helping someone find the perfect book, making sure the audience runs smoothly during a performance, you’re in luck. You can also help with tickets or retail and make sure these institutions continue to run and spread their knowledge with the community. You can reach out to places, including the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum to get started.

Senior Programs

The City of Las Cruces offers many programs for seniors in the community and relies on volunteers to keep them running. These are great for those who love leading classes, gardening, helping with food distribution and dances. Through these offerings, you get to spend time at any of Las Cruces' multiple senior centers.

Community Services

While this is a fairly broad category, that means there's a volunteer opportunity for almost everyone. There are many opportunities to work with outreach sports programs and the like. For those who like to be outside, Las Cruces also needs help with yard work, weeding, helping the Tree Stewards, and just keeping the city beautiful! Finally, you can also volunteer for the Crisis Response Intervention Team to help some of your neighbors who are most in need of your help.

City Departments

Many of the departments that keep our city running could use your help as well. From the airport to HR to the police department to utilities, these departments provide a great opportunity for those looking to network and learn new skills while giving back. 

Animal Service Center

Finally, check out the Animal Service Center of the Mesilla Valley. You can help out by walking dogs, taking care of the animals in the shelter, and helping with events off-site. There's a good chance that you may have a specific skill, such as photography, that they are in need of. This is a great spot for animal lovers to give back to their community.

These volunteer opportunities can have many benefits for both you and those you're helping in Las Cruces. On your days off, you can enjoy the outdoor beauty in the area.
